Anthony Petrello’s daughter Carena was born at just 24 weeks and was diagnosed with periventricular leukomalacia (PVL), which is caused by lack of oxygen to the brain. The enormous challenges his daughter will face made Mr. Petrello rethink his priorities. He started researching childhood disorders like cerebral parsley, downs syndrome, and mild ADHD and discovered that there was very little research or answers available. Anthony Petrello approached the Texas Children’s Hospital with an idea to devote time and money to research the causes of these disorders. He pledged 7 million to get the program up and running and received massive support from family and friends. In 2010, the Dan and Jan Duncan Neurological Research Institute opened its doors. Mr. Petrello hails this as one of the most cutting edge research centers in the world.
Anthony Petrello is helping make a brighter future for children by furthering research into childhood disorders. He is showing no signs of stopping his mission, and he has a bright future ahead of him.
